Hey Curly-Haired Girls, Give Your Hair Some Love And Use Lush's Shampoo Bar

Life's too short to waste plastic when you don't need to!

Oleg Magni

As a curly-haired girl who's dealt with terrible shampoos time after time, I decided I had enough with classic shampoos. You know, the ones that come straight from a plastic bottle. Even the most "natural" and "nourishing" shampoos never do my curls justice. My hair ends up frizzy, puffy and untamable (don't let me get started on the knots).


So, I decided to give Lush Fresh Handmade Cosmetic's a try. I've used their face masks and creams, but I shied away from using their hair products because I thought it was a "waste of money." I used Lush's shampoo bar in "New" - a refreshing, "spicy" and tingly cleansing soap. At $11.95 for 1.9 oz, I was a little hesitant to purchase, but I'm happy I did.


After I used the shampoo for the first time, I was so pleased with the results! My hair felt smooth and looked shiny! My curls bounced to life. Lush sells around 12 shampoo bars and two solid shampoos online (some are exclusively sold online, like "Brazilliant"). Each bar gets around 70-90 washes depending on how often you wash your hair. I've put together some benefits of Lush's shampoo bars after around a month of use -

1. Transportability

Think about the struggle of carrying around huge shampoo and conditioner bottles when traveling anywhere. Lush sells aluminum tins - perfect fit for your shampoo bar. You can also put the bar in a small container to keep it safe. Also, you don't have to worry about liquid sizes for flying because the bar is solid.

2. Eco-friendly

Less packaging = less damage to the earth. Overall, Lush products have very minimal or no packaging at all. If you can, try to buy them in-store, so you reduce the ecological footprint of transportation, packaging and shipping.

3. Cruelty-Free

I chose to purchase the "New" shampoo bar because of its smell AND message - #BeCrueltyFree. This shampoo bar is vegan and cruelty-free, so animals aren't harmed during the making of their products.

Overall, I haven't had many negative experiences with the shampoo bar beside the occasional bar stickiness (from excess water in the tin or increased humidity in my bathroom). All I did was dry out the bar in an open area on a piece of paper towel.

#BeCrueltyFree and support Lush's amazing, eco-friendly shampoo bars!

These Superfood Beauty Products Show Kale And Matcha Work For SO Much More Than We Thought

Just another summer's day with a cold glass of kombucha on my face.

I've been vegan for about six years now, so a love for fresh vegetables and superfoods has now become a core part of my being. Don't get me wrong. I love my indulgent, creamy pastas and truffle fries more than anyone. But I keep most of my focus on eating clean and healthy so I can indulge guilt-free.

But I'd say about a large part of my diet has always, unknowingly, included superfoods. Being Indian, lentils, beetroot, garlic, ginger, and whole grains have been core essentials on the family dinner table since I could digest solid foods.

Kourtney Kardashian has decided to leave "Keeping Up With The Kardashians" after nearly 14 years and although we saw this coming, it breaks our heart that she won't be there to make us laugh with her infamous attitude and hilarious one-liners.

Kourtney is leaving the show because it was taking up too much of her life and it was a "toxic environment" for her.

We Asked You How You Felt About Resuming 'Normal' Activities, And Some Of Your Answers Shocked Us

The New York Times asked 511 epidemiologists when they'd feel comfortable doing "normal" activities again, considering COVID-19. We asked our peers the same thing, for science.

Last month, the New York Times surveyed about 500 epidemiologists asking about their comfort level with certain activities once deemed normal — socializing with friends, going to the doctor, bringing in the mail. That's all well and good for the experts, but they are a very niche group, not the majority of the population. What do "normal" people feel safe doing? In certain states, we've seen how comfortable everyone is with everything (looking at you, Florida), but we wanted to know where Odyssey's readers fell on the comfort scale. Are they sticking with the epidemiologists who won't be attending a wedding for another year, or are they storming the sunny beaches as soon as possible?

Disney Plus

Millions of musical-lovers around the world rejoiced when "Hamilton," the hip-hop-mixtape-turned-musical harder to get in to than Studio 54, came to Disney Plus.

For those who had the luxury of being able to watch it in person and rewatch it with us mere mortals on our screens, the experience was almost as gripping as sitting feet from Lin-Manuel Miranda himself. From the stunning sets, graceful choreography, witty dialogue, and hauntingly beautiful singing, the experience was one even my musical-averse family felt moved by.

Keto Is All Fun And Games Until You're Undernourished And Almost Pass Out

Keto is just another extension of diet culture that boasts rapid weight loss, but at a steep price.

There has been a Keto diet craze going around in the past couple of years, with many of its followers claiming significant weight loss. With any new, trendy diet claiming miraculous weight-loss, one starts to wonder what exactly is happening behind the curtain. The keto, or ketogenic, diet is a very low-carb, high-fat diet that claims to help the body shift its fuel source from carbs to fat. In the medical community it has been prescribed to patients with uncontrolled epilepsy to reduce the frequency of seizures, but other than that there is little conclusive evidence to other potential benefits.
